  1. Monet and Chicago 

    Sep 16, 2020

    On every single level this book is perfect! Beautiful photographs of the items in the exhibit, details in actual size (look at those brush strokes!), history, extremely high quality printing, all the information you need to understand the story behind Monet and Chicago. I'm a librarian and I have seen, purchased, recommended and cried over books that move me and library patrons. Books are powerful items! When I opened this book and saw the Monet pink endpapers I felt myself well up.Each page was a delight that I tried to savor over time but ended up staying up late staring at each page over and over. If you cannot make it to Chicago to see the exhibit in person please buy yourself this book. Or even if you are going, reading this book ahead of time helps with the sensory overload which may overwhelm you as you enter the exhibit. I looked at this book over and over again after seeing the exhibit to extend the joy the Monets offer us.I do not buy many books but this one I'll cherish forever. Enjoy!!!!
